Founded in 2011 and hailing from Cork City, Ireland and USA, The Art Crimes Band signed to the Californian based SUGO Music record label in 2014 and launched their debut album of original material entitled ‘Radio’ at the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival in 2015. The group have gigged extensively together and have included very popular ventures into the world of Burlesque with International burlesquer and model extraordinaire Foxy P. Cox taking them far as Portugal and beyond. With a new year comes new beginnings and so the group released their first single of 2021 with the soulful ‘In The Dark Of The Evening’ worldwide in January and are busy with new studio album in the works.
